WAVE FORCES ON BREAKWATER ARMOUR UNITS

Jorgen Juhl, Ole Juul Jensen

Abstract


The authors have carried out a research project for investigation of the wave forces acting on breakwater armour units. The project included a literature study, hydraulic model testing and analysis of the test results. The hydraulic model testing was made in a wave flume on a 2-dimensional idealised breakwater structure with an armour layer consisting of two rows of horizontal pipes.
